Basie Center sets golf, tennis outing fundraiser for Sept. 29


The Count Basie Center for the Arts is adding a new twist to its annual golf outing in September: tennis!

The Basie’s annual golf (and tennis!) outing takes place Tuesday, September 29 at Eagle Oaks Golf and Country Club, 20 Shore Oaks Drive in Farmingdale. This year’s outing features morning and afternoon shotguns, with a 5pm cocktail hour and dinner / awards to follow. Chairs for this year’s outing are Basie Center board members Jeremy Grunin and Marta Gutierrez.

This year’s outing is more important than ever for the nonprofit Basie Center, which saw its summer gala and more than 70 other events either postponed or canceled as a result of the pandemic. The Basie has been dark and has made $0 in revenue since March 12.
